Photos popping up when a phone call comes

I noticed when I synced my phone with the navigation system that a photo box pops up on all contacts. I have photos in my phone (I have an iPhone 4S) in which most people will have their picture come up when they call.

Is there a way to get the photo sync to work in the Focus SE, so the photo as well as the name/number pops up when they call?

Hi, Mike,

According to our tests, the iPhone doesn't work with the Contact Photo feature on MyFord Touch.

Thanks Rebecca, darn!

Let me guess, that function works on Droids?

Moved to "Car Audio, SYNC, MyFord Touch & Electronics."

As Rebecca has said, it does not work. Doesn't work on my 5S or iOS7 either.

That answered that question, whether the new OS or iPhone will work with it.

You're welcome. :)

It doesn't work on all Droids, but yes. LOL! Here's a link to our compatibility chart in case you'd like to see what phones allow this:

http://www.nsapp.fordtechservice.dea...N_iop_2_00.pdf

Just so you know, this is an older version of the chart. Our site is currently down but I'll post the new link when it comes back up. :)

Here's the updated version, Mike0376:

http://support.ford.com/sync-technol...c-myford-touch

If you click on Photo ID, it'll show you all of the phones that are compatible with it.

Slightly off topic, but I managed to get the My Ford Sync update to work via a USB stick.

Prior to this, my iPhone 4S would allow text alerts to come up on screen. Since the update, that will not happen and I get a message that my particular phone isn't Bluetooth capable for texts. The Bluetooth works fine.

Thoughts?

Hi Mike0376,

Glad you were able to perform the update. Did you turn notifications on in your iPhone? Try this:

http://support.ford.com/sync-technol...c-myford-touch

Let me know how it goes.

Rebecca
